Christmas Holiday!

Dear all,

I'd like you to finish reading "Othello" at Christmas. Try to do the exercises on every chapter as well, I'll post the key to the remaining ones in January. When coming back from holiday, we'll read the last chapter, number 10, in class.


In this video from vimeo.com, you can see how the Joffrey Balley in Chicago talks about their interpretation of Othello and Desdemona. They render the meaning of the play into movement and it might help you understand the text.

I wish you all Merry Christmas!

Thanks!


Thank you all for sharing your time yesterday. I think it was a great success thanks to your participation. Did you attend? Did you participate? How? Did you like it? Tell us your experiences!

Congratulations to Esther, from NI1, who had the lucky number to win (321) the netbook. What are you going to do with it, Esther?

I specially congratulate Manuela from NB1 for being the most voted writer in the basic level. Her minisaga is the one below. Read the shortlisted minisagas of all levels as well!

When I watch the news on TV in the evening, I watch people in the streets of Haiti dead by cholera.
I think never again.

I watch people in Korea run away from the bombs.
I think never again.

I watch women mistreated by their husbands.
I think never again.

I watch children dead by famine.
I think never again.

Can everybody say together "Never Again" someday?

You can also follow the day in pictures.
